Dad/Mom, do you collect children’s cell phones & leave them locked in car when you enter God’s house? “But their Bibles are on their phones.” Allow an older man to give advice – give them a hard copy of God’s Word & require them to carry the same to worship. Few youth will hear from The Almighty if they’re scrolling their phones. God deserves their undivided attention & you, Dad/mom, can help that happen. – eab, 1/18/18



Thank you Lord for the Night:

To slow down and sleep,

To the home-fires keep

With Ewe and “little sheep.”


Thank you Lord for the Morn:

To throw-back, make the sheet

For breakfast to eat,

For shoes for the feet.


Thank you Lord for the Noon:

For strength to work till then

For work of hammer or pen,

For corn gathered in the bin.


Thank you Lord for the “Tardes:”

For warmth in winter’s sun,

For “game” from rod and gun,

For labor almost run.


Thank you Lord for the Even:

For the ceasing to roam,

For the walk toward home,

For the evening’s gloam.


And, if there is a time I’ve forgotten,

Please don’t think me “rotten,”

‘Cause I love life, and love all Your days

Broken up in hourly ways – all Praise!

How to memorize Scripture: You can read & re-read a verse/verse until engrained in your brain. You can read verses aloud on a tape & play back as you drive, work, mow, etc. You can write the verse out long-hand on line 1, again on line 2, etc until It is cemented in mind. You can cut index cards in ½ , place the verse on the lined side & its reference on the blank side & keep together with a rubber band. A stack of these is by my Bible now; worked on some this AM. “Thy Word have I hid…”

“The man whose little sermon is ‘repent’…will…be battered by the age whose moral tone he challenges. There is but one end for such a man—‘off with his head!’”

– Joseph Parker, quoted by Leonard Ravenhill


I hope you believe in being Redeemed from sins. I do. I hope you believe in have having the Holy Spirit purify your heart. I do. I hope that you understand that these 2 works of grace are the beginning of a life dedicated to God (& therefore one He controls, not you). Now allow the Spirit to lead you to higher heights, deeper depths of Biblical insight. Press on to a Rich prayer life which moves into a Richer one, until you maturity ushers you into God’s presence some day. Move on, Move up etc.

Mar 6.18

“For John had said unto Herod, ‘It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother’s wife.’”



Blogging for Eternity: When started separateholy.wordpress.com (2008) I asked God that at least 6 souls be in heaven that wouldn’t have been there but for the blog: 1 from each inhabited continent. When I added facebook & google+ I asked Him for additional souls. At times I’d rather read or something else than use time/energy to type ideas, proof read, cut & past, etc. but I do this for my Master. Praise His Name.
